About Erika's Lighthouse
Erika's Lighthouse is determined to make sure no young person feels alone in their depression. We are dedicated to creating a community of empathy and education. We create middle school and high school teen depression awareness programs so educators and teens can create safe spaces to learn about depression, letting students know they are never alone, and there is somewhere to turn.
I believe that there is a huge stigma surrounding mental health, especially in the teenage years. With proper education and awareness, teens are familar with the signs and symptoms of depression, anxiety, and other mental health issues. I have been, and still am, a huge advocate for breaking down the stigma and normalizing the conversation about mental health.
Erika's Lighthouse helped me realize when I was in high school that everyone is struggling in some way, and there are always people willing to listen and help. Everyone has a story, and Erika's Lighthouse provides a space for that story to be heard and understood by others.
I am so excited to be continuing my passion for mental health advocacy by fundraising for an organization like Erika's Lighthouse!!
